For the canna-curious dad… 420WALDOS WATCHES

For the canna-curious dad… 420WALDOS WATCHES

As you know, at Rural Mom, we are total hemp (cannabis) advocates who regularly celebrate the amazing properties of this fabulous plant. Which is why we adore 420Waldos Watches!

The new 420Waldos brand watches are tied to the cannabis movement, something much bigger than a watch brand itself. These days, many find relief with medicinal cannabis or extracts like CBD, and this watch brand was conceived and created support those needing this relief. With every watch sold, 420Waldos Watches will donate a percentage of the sales proceeds to organizations working to legalize cannabis at the federal level.

Each watch offers a way to “join the club” and wear the symbol of the movement, while helping to push for legalization. It’s also one of the most beautiful Father’s Day gift ideas. The watches are well designed with high quality materials. Super attractive and fun to wear! Additional bands can be purchased to give the wearer flexibility in matching their watch band to their outfit or mood.

We’re proud to own and wear a 420Waldos Watch and hope that you will join us for Father’s Day and beyond in supporting this much-needed movement to change perceptions and support the use of medicinal cannabis (and cannabis derivatives like CBD).

Buffalo Games has some of the puzzle designs all with a “Perfect Snap™”. This is a precision cutting technique that guarantees every piece will fit soundly with that satisfying “snap!”

For the dad with the majestic beard... BLUEGRASS HIVE & HONEY

For the dad with the majestic beard… BLUEGRASS HIVE & HONEY

My husband always says that we just don’t understand the “power of the beard”. Whether that’s true or not, one things for sure, a well-groomed beard is much more delightful than a scruffy unkempt one!

Bluegrass Hive & Honey, a lovely Kentucky-based company dedicated to community outreach and bee-keeping, offers exceptional beard products with simple, natural ingredients. Each product also has a touch of bee goodness from locally sourced beeswax in the beard balm and beard wax to essential oils from bee plant favorites like orange and clove.

The fragrances are pure and delightful, too. We’re particularly fond of the signature series “Mint Julep”.  An ode to a Kentucky Derby cocktail favorite, it combines mint with the warm charred oak and smooth vanilla undertones of classic Kentucky bourbon. Bluegrass personified, indeed!

Bluegrass Hive & Honey also offers beard grooming products and boxed sets that include everything your dad need to hydrate and maintain the power of the beard!

For the dad who always figures things out... ROTO BRAIN

For the dad who always figures things out… ROTO BRAIN

Growing up, it seemed like our parents truly had the proverbial “eyes in the back of their heads”! Dads are certainly clever with a penchant for following clues and solving puzzles. Roto Brain, the latest toy launch from Creative Brainworks, will put their problem-solving skills to the ultimate test!

Roto Brain is a challenging 3D puzzle sphere designed to challenge minds from 8 to 100 years old. This brain teasing puzzle enhances memory, critical thinking skills and tests IQ’s. Its endless color combinations provide a challenge for anyone who dares to crack the color combination code.

It’s a great gift for any dad and will provide hours of addictive, color-spinning fun for the whole family. The best part is once you crack the Roto Brain code, the play doesn’t end, you reset and learn how to solve the next level. There are unlimited code combinations and three levels of difficulty that can stump even the best memory abilities.

For all the dads in dire need of some pampering… FOOT NANNY POWER MAN KIT

For all the dads in dire need of some pampering… FOOTNANNY POWER MAN KIT

We were absolutely thrilled to learn about the Footnanny’s Power Man Kit this year. It’s just what every weary dad needs this year to put some pep back in their step!

The Footnanny Power Man Kit was created knowing that men love taking care of their feet too. Designed by Gloria L. Williams, a longtime former personal pedicurist to Oprah Winfrey, this line’s signature Foot Cream formula features five key components (soy, shea butter, cocoa butter, vitamin C, and vitamin E) that work together to nurture the body through the feet.

Each Footnanny Power Man Kit consists of a RESCUE buffer, Foot Cream, Arch-N-Ball Massager and a pair of Footnanny’s white cotton socks. Footnanny’s RESCUE buffer is a special treat this will help repair and revive. It removes dry and calloused skin off the bottoms of your feet and targeted areas (like corns) to restore smooth, healthier skin. Foot Cream aroma choices include unscented, eucalyptus, and tea tree.

Pick up a kit for every great dad on your list (and check out their other wellness sets, too!)


Disclosure: We may receive sample products for review for our Thoughtful Father’s Day Gift Ideas guide. Most samples are donated to local charities after gently testing and inspecting. If it’s not a gift we wouldn’t love to receive, you will not find it in any guide. We do not accept payment for placement of items in our guides. If it made it to our list, it’s earned a spot. We base our decisions on high quality, reasonable price point, and overall excellence in durability and/or functionality.
